The television version of The Jack Benny Show ran on CBS from Saturday October
28, 1950 to 1965. The opening and closing monologues were before a live audience
with half the episodes were live and the other half were filmed during the summer,
to allow Benny to continue doing his radio show. Benny would often sign off his
radio show with the line ”Well, good night, folks, I’ll see you on television”. The
TV show was sponsored by Lucky Strike cigarettes.
